My Valentine's mantle is complete. It really is appropriate for any time of the year.
My theme comes straight from the Word:
LOVE from the Father and his commandment for us to LOVE one Another.
I added two new pieces since my last post. I had plans for a couple more too, and then I realized that Valentine's Day is less than a week away! I guess I'll work on those for next year.
I created this little 5x7 "Oh How HE Loves us" canvas in only a couple of minutes!
First I painted the canvas red. Add white vinyl letters and a ribbon around the edge. So simple!
My next project was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.
I found all the supplies among my craft stuff! Yeah! I gathered some red buttons...
Wrapped a 5 x 7 canvas in burlap (you know how I LOVE burlap!)
Stapled around the edges (don't worry, I cover those staples!)
Created a heart template so I'd get the basic shape when adhering my buttons.
I used regular tacky glue for each button (no picture of that part-but you get the idea!)
And then I added ribbon around the edges using glue dots.
I love the combinations of textures and colors.
Don't ever forget:
John 13:34 "Love one another"
Happy Valentine's Day!
